Aha !! At last I got to watch "Evam Indrajeet" yesterday. I had read a lot about the play in the past weeks and was eager to watch the play, which gave the theatre group its name and inspired all of you to quit your jobs and pursue theatre.

In a nutshell, my comment on "Evam Indrajit" would be "It was like a breath of fresh air".

A very well executed play. A strong script and great actors.Sorry, I dont remember the names of the actors. But the actor who played the chief protagonist was simply superb. With equal grit & poise, he portrayed the various phases of his life. He almost epitomized every person in our society, who thinks and who does not blindly follow what 'everyone does'. It was sad to see the character of Indrajit become 'Nirmal' in the end, but again that portion was superbly done.

The actor who played "The Poet" has a very bright future in the world of theatres. He was scinillating in the role all the while. As the Sutradhar at times and as the only person who is pained at Indrajit's conversion into "Nirmal", he was great.

It will be unfair not to mention the actor who played "Manasi". Wow !! How well she moulded into her role !! First as the young girl (with a soft corner for Indrajit) and then as her more mature self.

I thank all the members of Evam for a splendid show. Indeed, this was one play that made us all think, about out lives. Looking back, I can say that "Evam Indrajit" almost seems like my own life in three stages. Thank you guys. Next time when "Evam" stages a play, I would definitely be there.

thanks deba!

we try presenting a story in all sincerety .. and try to communicate to an audience- for us the audience is truly GOD!

For us - presenting the play is like an exam(an enjoyable one;)) and then we await the result .. audience feedback- and hence your word mean a lot - keep watching and reacting!
we promise to tell stories in all earnestness!

Dear Anonymous,

Thanks for the feedback and you choice of adjectives-would have prefered if you could explain why you didnt like what you saw- then we would be able to use the feedback better-:)

after all- we cannot simply "dance" well in order to "move" our audiences!

Well, I have not watched "Barefoot ..." yet, but from what I have heard from my friends, it can never be called crap.

Anyway, I have also written abt "Evam Indrajit" in my blog.

<1>: Hi,Hats off to Evam !!! The role of Indrajit was very well and superbly played by the person.The anger that the character had to portray towards the shoe polisher was very much evident in the face and seemed realistic.A tough topic dealt with subtly.
The costumes worn were good as it had given an eye to every detail.The way the lady whom Indrajit married changed to Manasi was good.Music and photography synchronised to the beat of the play.
The character of the Writer was beautifully done with wonderful dialogue delivery and expressions.At the last when Indrajit wanted to become Nirmal - the words spoken by the writer to Indra looked as if it were the Bhagawadgeeta.
The performance of the Chorus team was good.It helped the effect reach the audience as the words were vibrating in the hall.On the whole - the play has raised a lot of questions and the thought process is kindled.
